Promise VTrak E5000 Series

High Performance Meets High Availability

The VTrak E5000 Series goes above and beyond, providing affordable high-performance Fibre Channel to SAS Storage solutions with advanced enterprise level reliability and functionality. Four 16Gb Fibre channel ports and two 12Gb SAS ports per controller connecting host and storage expansion, the E5000 makes it a perfect fit for applications requiring huge bandwidth. The E5000 can reach outputs of 542,100 read IOPs and up to 111.686 write IOPs. The E5000 delivers a whopping 12 Gigabyte read and 5.3 Gigabyte write sequential throughput. Equipped with a range of redundancy components such as active-active controllers, power supplies and cooling unites, help to provide for optimal data availability, even during unforeseen circumstances. The VTrak E5000 makes for a fully featured enterprise level storage system that can accommodate any size of business environment.

Data Center Ready

Fully compatible with 6 Gb/s SAS/SATA devices, the VTrak E5000 gives users the ability to deploy 6 Gb/s and 12Gb/s SAS/SATA HDDs and SSDs Efiicient power supplies provide up to 90% improved power efficiency, improving TCO by conserving power, reducing heat output and lower cooling costs. The E5000’s flash arrays enable optimized speed for key enterprise applications that need high speed transfer rates and reduced latency. thanks to it’s Intel multi-core Broadwell-DE based architecture providing ample processing power to achieve transfer speeds at line rate on both 16Gb Fibre Channel front-end interfaces and 12Gb SAS Back-end interfaces

Cloud Ready

With businesses and consumer adopting an on-the-go approach, the need for data retrieval, access and distribution at any time and anywhere, brings with it the need for data to be protected at all times. The E5000 series brings the benefits of versatility and scalability to meet the demands of data centers, hyper scale computing and high-performance computing that require flexibility and budget friendly tiered storage management.

Virtualisation Ready

The Vtrak E5000 series is certified with VMware, vSphere, Citrix XenServer, and microsoft Hyper-V, with the addition of VMWare VAAI, reducing resource overhead on VMware cSphere ESXi hosts. This guarantees significant improvements in performance for storage-intensive operations like storage cloning, zeroing and many more.
